According to Statistics Canada, more than 11 million Canadians have been physically or sexually assaulted since the age of 15. This represents 39% of women and 35% of men 15 years of age and older in Canada, with the gender difference driven by a much higher prevalence of sexual assaultamong women than men (30% versus 8%).

So why is access to rape kits so incredibly difficult? Why do people need to travel hours to receive something that should be considered a basic human right?

This is a question that lingers in my mind and the minds of many other Canadians. This petition serves as a voice. A voice for me, for you and for every Canadian that believes that rape kits should be accessible in every hospital across the country. This will be sent to City Councils across Canada as well as health officials and hopefully our Prime Minister.

Thank you for your consideration!
